Cat and Valerie met in 2017 when Cat was on holiday in mallorca. They talked about the idea of going around mallorca by sup and decided to create a plan. Once sponsors like starboard signed up it began to take shape. Now the two share more than just their love for the planet: “we could have not imagined the kind of bond this trip would create between us. We didn’t really know each other before and we don’t have the same language which did cause some communication errors along the way!”
People from all over the island got involved in the soller to soller expedition.”We had people driving out to us in boats to deliver food, water, foghorns, physiotherapy and all sorts! The support from the island was incredible and kept us going in those tough moments.” groups of school children were amongst some of the hundreds who welcomed the two back to soller on day 24. “it was amazing to see the numbers of people who followed our progress and donated to the cause”.
